Do you consider yourself lucky? We're not necessarily talking about significant, flashy ways but rather in the small, mundane interactions that make up most of our lives. Do you win local giveaways more often than most people you know? Is there always a sale on exactly the thing you need when you go to the store? Maybe you have a knack for finding loose money on the ground?
No matter your luck, you might be outmatched in that department by one man from Colorado, USA, who won the $1 million Powerball jackpot—twice in the same day.
Are you still searching for your life purpose? You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you!
That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.
Do You Play The Lottery?
Even if you don't play the lottery, have you ever thought about what'd you do with that much money? Who would get gifts, what the first things you'd buy yourself would be, what trips you'd take, or what your future would look like?
Not only is it fun to fantasize about, but it says a lot about us too! People really let their priorities show when planning out where their finances would go first.
It Remains Just A Dream
For most of us, that is. It's no surprise that the odds of winning the lottery are astronomically low, but there's nothing wrong with a little indulgent thinking.
Every week there are new lottery winners announced, and those who play but didn't win have the chance to look on with envy before rolling the (proverbial or literal) dice once more. One man's extremely lucky win was grounds for not just a bit of healthy jealousy, but some genuine awe as well.
Meet 'Joe B.'
He won the $1 million Powerball jackpot twice in the same day.
Joe lives in Colorado, and has been playing the same Powerball numbers for 30 years now, a strategy that appears to have paid off in a big, big way.
He purchased two winning tickets at different stores about a mile apart, buying one in the morning and one that same evening.
The news that you won $1 million is amazing enough on its own! That's a life-changing amount of money, and there are plenty of people around the world who would immediately better their lives with that cash.
Then to hear that you won again in the same day? The chances of that happening are astronomically low, so not only are you $2 million richer, but you can say you experienced an event that's rarer than becoming president, having conjoined twins, or being struck by lightning three times in your life.
Luck On His Side
Joe B.'s story certainly makes a case for consistently playing the same numbers. By the way, if you were curious, his numbers were 5-9-27-39-42...Maybe they've got a certain luck to them.
When asked what he was going to do with the money, he revealed that he already has someone else on the case. "The Boss has plans for it," he answered, referring to his wife.
Here's hoping he didn't use up all his luck in one place, though.
Love Led The Way
Joe is the perfect example of determination paying off. At any point, he could have changed his numbers, played random numbers, or stopped playing the lottery altogether, but instead, he stayed true to his picks and look where it got him!
Perhaps those numbers were sentimental to him in some way, having to do with loved ones or special memories. He won thanks to the various joys in his life!
His story serves as a reminder that staying true to our beliefs does have its benefits.
Of course, there's a large element of luck to these stories as well, but they're still nice to hear about. After all, if it can happen to Joe B. in Colorado, it can happen to you too! If not this exact miracle, then something else that will better your life and have you feeling grateful that it happened.
